Why are you even here?
Anonymous asked: reverse!AU: Jack Noir is the king, Black Queen the archagent.
Three days into the session, the Black King suffered a fatal accident. He slipped on the stairs and fell twelve flights, coming to a rest at the final landing, his body broken and mangled. Prospitian spies were blamed but the Archagent stepped forward and clarified that no foul play had been involved. She and the King had passed by on the stairs when he turned and tripped, and there was nothing she could do but chase after him.
It was a tragedy. Derse went into a year of mourning. The Black Queen was devastated. During that dark year, it was the Archagent who kept Derse running, taking over all of the King’s duties in his stead and ensuring that nothing was left in the lurch.
Through her guidance, Derse entered a new golden age, remembering their fallen monarch but reinvigorated. And when the children entered the Session and the game began, it was Derse who triumphed over all. The Archagent had served in the role of Black King for so long that none could remember much about the actual Black King, other than that he had been somewhat ornery and he had perhaps been a little handsy.
Later, much much, when the world was old, the Archagent wrote her memoirs. She told them everything about her reign, except for what really happened that day the Black King fell down the stairs. He did trip, after she hit him for groping her ass. But he only fell one flight on his own. Jack never could manage to do things properly.
Thankfully, she was an excellent Archagent and she helped him with the other eleven sets of stairs.
im so glad
